Ted Johnson (b. 1903) was a Swedish-American violinist, who led a popular Scandinavian dance band in the Twin Cities during 1930s and 1940s.

Thorstein Skarning (1888-1939) was a Norwegian-born accordion virtuoso and bandleader, who toured the Upper Midwest for over two decades and was a Twin Cities radio personality in the 1930s. Following his death, his son Thorstein B. Skarning kept the orchestra going into the 1950s, promoting it as "the only Norske band in the United States featuring old style mixed music."
